between north korea and the united states, south korea, japan, and china. there has been increasing concern that this war of nerves is going to change into a war of weapons. is thet recent concern possible launch of a north korean medium-range missile. april 15 seemed like a good day to do that since it is the 101st nniversary of kim il sung's birth. what a better present for the old man and to launch a missile in his name. there are lots of questions around this, what the implications are, whether there is a way out of this. i have six questions that i will post to my colleagues in different permutations and will marchs and we through these as expeditiously as we can to leave time for your questions. the first question is, is this crisis different from previous ones? if it is, in what ways? what is the real danger of war? a stab atd you take the first question? >> yes, thank you for being here today. in a number of respects, as you look at the crisis, as it has unfolded, it is easy, especially for cynical old correa hands like me to say, there they go again. to some extent, there i

the nuclear capability, as the general says, to threaten either south korea or the united states. they could perhaps deliver some kind of warhead to south korea, but not on a missile. maybe by plane or ship or truck, but they don't have that delivery capability. if they restart the nuclear facility, as they said they would, it could take six months to a year. remember, we went in there. i went in there in 2008. i watched them disable it. that was sort of a honeymoon period between north korea and the west, as they disabled it. then it sort of comes to where it is now. they said it could restart within six months to a year. >> those were the good old days. fareed, the fear is there could be a miscalculation. even though no one thinks north korea is suicidal, they know they would be destroyed if they did something drastic. but if there was an incident and the new government in south korea responded, who knows what would happen? >> that's right, wolf. the problem is, imagine one of these missiles is launched. the km-8 missiles. they don't have nuclear warheads small enough to put on them, so th
line between north and south korea. it's the most militarized border on the planet. and the crimes that pay for north korea's military might. it's like something out of the movie, "the godfather." >>> we begin this hour with a tough, new warning to north korea from the defense secretary of the united states. chuck hagel. he says kim jong-un, is skating, in his words, very close to a dangerous line. the communist leader could order a missile test launch at any moment. we're being told that the north koreans are military masters of deception who may have something else up their sleeves, as well. our pentagon correspondent, barbara starr, is joining us now with the latest. barbara? >> reporter: wolf, military masters of deception, indeed. and new indications that the north koreans may have some other plans up their sleeve. defense secretary chuck hagel's message to kim jong-un and his north korean regime, enough is enough. >> with its bellicose rhetoric, with its actions, have been skating very close to a dangerous line. >> reporter: in the hours before an expected north korean missil
to south korea and the u.s. navy shifted a guided missile destroyer in the pacific. now, these moves come as north korea's leader kim jong-un said over the weekend he's entering a state of war with south korea. and threatened military action against south korea and the united states. joining us now to talk about what all this could mean for the global economy and the markets, ian bremer, a political risk and research and consulting firm. let me begin you with a basic question. what does kim jong-un really want? >> it's very clear his state of war does not preclude doing business with the south. their joint industrial park in north korea is still open, so it's not like he's about to start launching rockets into south korea. i think what he clearly wants is more money, more respect and he probably wants a restart of the negotiations with the united states from a position of greater strength. he has clearly failed on absolutely every one of those counts over the last two weeks. i think that's what's actually agitating observers, not the notion that we're at the precipice of war. >> this guy

, but still, a device then theoretically could reach south korea pretty easily, no? >> well, no, it could. they've got the missile technology, they could launch missiles with no warning that would touch south korea and could possibly even reach japan. that's always been a major concern and where we are right now is this nuclear capability already been weaponized, is it available and can it be launched. and because d.i.a. cannot say with certainty but with some degree of moderate confidence, and that means we have drawn some conclusions and made some assessments, and we have to be cautious. because if we're not cautious, we're going to lose the ability to collect and continue to try to go after this target. >> according to the administration, this was mistakenly declassified and disclosed today by congressman lamborn. how big a deal, general marks, is that? because it obviously didn't go through the usual intelligence channels. >> well, it's an extremely big deal to the defense intelligence agency, the dni, general jim clapper. they have to go back and make sure that they are looking at ex
dogs in south korea dare take one step, dare attack us, then we will unleash this unimaginable attack against them, including nuclear weapons, putting aside to one point whether or not there is a capability, in fact, to do what they threaten to do. but that, i think, bespeaks of the sense of frustration that north korea often encounters. that does add to the element of risk here, i wouldn't dispute what evans says. but that's why i think we need to take these statements seriously, prepare carefully, but certainly not overreact which in a way would be playing to north korea's preferred responses. >> mike, do you have anything to add? >> just very briefly, richard, and thanks for the opportunity. it's an honor to be up here with such distinguished north korea experts and the whole panel, and my comment is much more general and not specialized nearly as much. but i still want to just raise a question based on one thing jonathan said about what the main purpose is behind all these provocations. and, jonathan, you mentioned that your interpretation is that it's largely for domestic purpose
a spectacular success in terms of its economic development. south korea is about 10 times greater than is in the north. and they tried to defend themselves against outside influence with this military capability. the chinese have been begging the north koreans for two decades to open up their economy has yet to produce the kind of progress that has enabled china to achieve economic growth. the north koreans refused to do it. when he came on just a year or so ago, he talked about instituting chinese-style reforms and he began a few things that suggested he might want to do some reforms himself. he brought out alive. his father never brought his wife out in public as his grandfather never did. there was a cultural show that had some mickey mouse kind of figures. dennis rodman was brought over because he is apparently a basketball fan for his time as a student. that he needed to open up and build this economy. the chinese don't want to have said -- to subsidize the failed regime. , webest that we could tell are guessing to some degree is that there was a big fight internally. said, you ca
increasingly strident warnings about an imminent war with south korea and the u.s. apparently upset about new, tougher u.n. sanctions and recent joint south korean military exercises. the escalating rhetoric has u.s. officials quite unnerved. defense secretary hagel announcing this weekend a decision to postpone a long scheduled missile test to avoid making an already tense situation even worse. secretary of state kerry left yesterday for the middle east, but he'll be traveling on to seoul and beijing later in the week hoping to get north korea's closest ally, china, help in dealing with this crisis. that's where i want to begin this morning. joining me republican senator from south carolina, lindsey graham. senator, with welcome back to the program. you're just back from visiting the middle east, and back to the u.s., and i want to ask you about syria as well in just a couple of minutes. let me start with north korea and what we're dealing with. a couple of headlines in the magazines caught my attention in "the economist" and in "the week" magazine. is kim crazy? korean roulette. this war of
korea another day another threat. this is the latest one telling foreigners in south korea to prepare in case there is an all-out thermo nuclear war. >> this is a message coming from state run media urging foreigners to find shelter. the north says they don't want them caught out in all of this. and is this a warning that people are really heeding? are they taking it seriously? >> i think we have to put this into context. we have been getting these threats on a daily basis coming out of north korea. people here in seoul are tiring of the rhetoric. yes this warning that foreign nationals here in south korea should leave, should evacuate because they cannot guarantee that they would be safe in an act of war. and just to give you an idea the british embassy is taking this. this is a segment. we are not commenting on specifics of every piece of rhetoric from north korea. it gives you an idea as to the way it's being read in this part of the peninsula, anyway. it does come obviously following that warning late last week from the foreign embassy. 1:00 a.m. here on the 10th of april and that
